Go Texan Day: We want to see your office's getups

When I was a little girl, I knew when it was rodeo season ? not because I was patiently awaiting the deep-fried everything and playing with goats at the petting zoo, which I definitely was ? but because on the Friday before the rodeo rolled out, I was dressed Texan to a T. I'd have tiny cowboy boots with a matching hat and a bandana around my neck; and a few years, my mom handmade my Western wear. While I might not still have her as my personal clothier, she instilled the tradition in me just?

How to grow your communication skills

Human communication is complex, but the first thing that comes to mind when we hear the word ?communication? is often spoken or written words. However, the words we speak and hear are just one way we communicate, and some studies show that most of our communication takes place through other means. Humans communicate in many different ways, such as verbal, nonverbal, body language and artistic communication, which is through images or music. The way we communicate with people affects all aspects?

New Houston LGBT chamber of commerce forms

Houston has many different chambers of commerce that identify with different geographic regions and demographics. Beginning this spring, the LGBT community will have one as well. Roughly 3.3 percent of the Greater Houston area identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender, according to a recent Gallup poll, but there is no chamber of commerce that represents and promotes LGBT-owned businesses, said Tammi Wallace, co-chair of the steering committee. "There's an LGBT chamber of commerce in?

Guard-heavy Klein Forest looks to continue perfect season through playoffs

College basketball fans know it as the system that helped Villanova win the national championship at NRG Stadium last year. The casual basketball fan would recognize it as an offense with four guards, where everyone on the floor can handle and pass the ball instead of letting one traditional point guard run everything. To the players' credit, there doesn't seem to be a lot of chest-thumping about an impressive win-loss record that won't mean anything when they open the playoffs against Nimitz on Tuesday. At the highest classification, no boys basketball team has had a perfect regular season and won the state championship since Duncanville in 2007. [...] three teams - Atascocita last year, Lakeview Centennial in 2011 and Strake Jesuit in 2009 - made it to the state tournament with an unblemished record only to be sent home. Klein Forest rallied down the stretch, and in the final seconds, Reggie Miller drove the lane and hit the game-winning bucket at the buzzer for a 66-64 win. Black probably isn't as eager as his players to take another shot at a good team, but he thinks his players' attitude compares favorably to that of the only Klein Forest teams to make it to state - the 2008 group and the 2000 team on which Black was an assistant under coach Larry Pitre.

Bill would create 'Amber Alerts' for chemical emergencies

Chemical fires and releases across Houston in the last year, and the Houston Chronicle's Chemical Breakdown series, have shed light on problems with toxic stockpiles and emergency response. The bill would create a statewide "opt-out" system, meaning phone users would get the alerts unless they deliberately choose not to, just as some Amber Alerts and weather warnings are pushed to mobile phones automatically. Initial reports linked the smell to a chemical refinery, but officials later walked back that assessment, and the incident remains under investigation. [...] there was no air monitoring, and the U.S. Chemical Safety Board later determined that the gas could have ignited and exploded. Federal investigators deemed it an unsolved arson, but they also pointed to problems with the way the explosive fertilizer was stored, and with the emergency response, which put firefighters and residents in unnecessary danger.

Young spellers excel from 'a' to b-e-e

African American students show prowess at event [...] on Saturday, 15 word gladiators dressed in T-shirts denoting their love for the components of the dictionary took on the form of an academic beehive, competing in the African American National Spelling Bee, the capstone event of a nonprofit group committed to training middle school students for competition and academic achievement. There were dings after "idiosyncrasy," "duress" and "bequest," as nervous parents shifted in their seats and sighed in the Heinen Theatre at Houston Community College's Central Campus. The soundtrack for the event's final ovation was "Survivor" - a winner's anthem by Beyoncé's former group, Destiny's Child. Robert Garner, a Houston real estate entrepreneur and founder of the African American National Spelling Bee Championships Inc., has organized events in Pennsylvania and California over the last decade. Children from Houston Independent School District, Crosby ISD, Cypress-Fairbanks ISD, YES Prep Southside charter school and the Abiding Word Lutheran School participated in the bee this year. The National Assessment of Educational Progress, a reading scale that ranges from zero to 500, measures U.S. student reading performance in grades 4, 8 and 12. According to the 2013 results reported by the U.S. Department of Education, average eighth-grade reading scores for Asian students were 280; 276 for white students; 256 for Hispanic students; 251 for American Indian students; and 250 for black students. Jacqueline Terrell, the spelling bee's executive director, said the group's mission is to close achievement gaps by pushing students beyond memorization with word decoding techniques. The Walker brothers attend Crosby Middle School and trained in Saturday workshops with volunteers and African American spelling bee alumna Angel Walker, their older sister.

The Motley Fool: The animals of Wall Street

In 1873, working with a customer with a good idea, I patented and made the world's first pair of denim jeans. The company has a high debt load and primarily operates in the increasingly competitive wireless industry. Proposed lower taxes and a business-friendly environment in the U.S. should provide a tailwind for profits. AT&T is becoming a growth engine again, too, with its acquisition of DirecTV and its proposed takeover of Time Warner (which isn't guaranteed to be approved). Bundling its pay-TV, wireless and broadband internet services gives the telecom giant tremendous leverage in delivering media content across multiple platforms - especially if it excludes that content from data charges across its own networks. If the GOP succeeds in lowering corporate tax rates, that will also help AT&T.

Jackson Lee welcomes Katy-area student from Jordan who was detained

A 16-year-old from Jordan stood silently midday Monday in the decorated downtown office of a Houston-area congresswoman, his hands folded in front of him. A Katy-area student, Mohammad was detained in Houston at Bush Intercontinental Airport when he returned from his native country a day after President Donald Trump issued his immigration ban on Jan. 27. The Democratic congresswoman called Mohammad an "innocent child," explaining that he had gone home to renew the documents that allowed him to be in America. Because he was a minor, the case moved from the Department of Homeland Security to Health and Human Services, which eventually released him. An HHS spokeswoman declined to comment on the young man's case in an email, saying the agency "does not identify individual unaccompanied children" to ensure their privacy, safety and well-being.

Former Humble ISD officer presses sexual discrimination suit

A former Humble ISD police officer on Friday launched a sexual discrimination suit against the district, claiming supervisors in the small department harassed her from day one, telling her she "looked gay" and making explicit comments about women's bodies. Robin Carr is now asking for up to $1 million in a sweeping lawsuit that accuses the department of everything from fostering a hostile work environment to invasion of privacy to slander. The training officer Carr was belatedly assigned first gave her a silent treatment for days and then started asking "clearly inappropriate personal questions about Ms. Carr's sexual orientation and lifestyle," according to the suit. Another training officer quizzed Carr about her dating life and whether she went to strip clubs - and even launched into discussions about his own sexual conquests, the suit alleges.
